Planning for Gypsies and Travellers

One of the key roles of planning is to address accessibility for all members of the community to jobs, health, housing, education, shops, leisure and facilities.

This good practice note is in a series of complementary parts. It aims to help practitioners deliver satisfactory services to Gypsy and Traveller communities. There is a strong focus on integrated, effective service delivery through the optimum use of stakeholder resources and partnership working.

It has been primarily written for planners working in England. However, it will provide assistance for non-planning stakeholders involved in planning and service delivery processes and to planners outside England.

Please note: This advice was written in 2007. Since then the legislative framework has changed, however the principles and ways of working promoted in it remain relevant.
